Icky Poem Parts

You wouldn't think the word 'beetles' would appear in many poems. Okay, any poems. However...

Have you dreaded these earth-beetles?
To Think of Time. Whitman, Walt. 1900. Leaves of Grass

Beetles black, approach not near;
Lullaby. William Shakespeare

The shining doors are busy, beetles run
From ‘Paracelsus’ by Robert Browning

Are you amazed? The things I do to keep you entertained.


Leaves of Grass editions

Complete poems / William Shakespeare.
